This morning I found out of the passing of a great mate and mentor, retired Senior Sergeant John ‘JB’ Byers BM.
I first met JB when I was a teenager and he was in the Rescue Squad with my old man ( Edward ‘Ted’ Doherty ).
I later worked with him at 24 Division when I graduated from the Academy.
JB was a hard as nails ‘old school’ cop, a true legend. I could not count the hours I have stood with him a crime scenes in the middle of the night. It was a running joke, if we got called out to any crime scene during the night we would always call JB for lighting regardless of if we needed it or not. We had some fun times over the years and drank many beers together. I’ll have one for you today mate.
All of the Doherty family’s thoughts and prayers are with JB’s beautiful wife Cath, his children Mark, Elizabeth and Karina and all of his grandchildren.
RIP mate.

 

John had both knees replaced in early 2015 and also had a hip replacement after that, together with a bout of Cancer of the Bowel.

Once he Retired from NSWPF, he moved to Narooma where he drove a taxi for many years.

He was a great bloke for a laugh, a great bloke to catch up with, a knowledgeable bastard who always had your back.

John – may you forever Rest In Peace mate.

John is mentioned, in passing, in the book by Jason Byrnes – called:

@PeterWallaceAU
An old copper I worked with has died; John Byers.
I went to a fatal with him once. He dived into the Hacking river at night and pulled two bodies out of a submerged car.
That took some guts.
He had multiple bravery awards.
No condolences please. Just know this hero lived.

Injured bushwalker finally rescued

SYDNEY: The rescue of a 61-year-old bushwalker who had fractured her ankle while walking in the Morton National Park had turned into a large-scale operation which was hampered by bad weather and flooding.

Several attempts to reach the injured woman by air had failed due to cloud and heavy rain.

Swollen creeks had prevented an attempt to carry her out before she was airlifted to Nerriga with two of her rescuers at 2pm yesterday afternoon.

She was later taken to Shoalhaven Hospital.

Ulladulla police said yesterday that a further 30 rescuers had been sent to reach the rescue party with equipment to set up flying-foxes across the rivers and creeks.

The drama began on Tuesday, when the woman fell while walking with three companions on Mt Haughton in the Budawang Ranges.

A police spokesman said a South Coast Wilderness Society member had contacted Nowra police late that afternoon after he came across the party, and six rescuers walked in to meet them.

On Tuesday, Ulladulla police said the National Parks and Wildlife Service helicopter was unable to land in the area due to low cloud.

As a result, a further 13 rescuers joined the bushwalkers and the entire party attempted to walk out of the park late Wednesday.

Ulladulla police said the ground party managed to get about 1km because of swollen rivers and creeks.

They camped overnight and the 30 new rescuers tried to reach the party. The extra rescuers were to relieve some of the earlier crew and try to set up flying-foxes across the rivers.

A naval helicopter from Nowra airlifted 18 of the rescuers stranded by rising flood waters to Nerriga yesterday afternoon.

According to the rescue co-ordinator, Sergeant John Byers, the remaining rescuers would try to make their way out on foot.

“I hope to have them out tonight,” he said.

Senior Constable John Andrew BYERS

New South Wales Police Force

On 30 March 1986 a number of police were called to apprehend a mentally disturbed man ( Horan ) who was driving a utility around Bathurst in a dangerous manner.

At the Perthville bridge there was a collision between a police truck and the utility and they became wedged on the approach.

The offender ( Horan ) got out holding a .303 rifle covered with material in his hands.

Senior Constable Byers crawled through the window and grappled with the offender.

He then fell to the ground and the offender broke free and fired at him.

The offender began to fire at the police, at which time Constable 1st Class Paul Mitchell Quinn was shot in the neck and killed instantly and Constable Ian Borland was seriously wounded.

Seeing him go to the back of his utility, Constable Byers fired back and got to his feet as the offender ran down the embankment and turned and fired again.

Constable Byers emptied his revolver, threw himself on the ground between the truck and the utility and reloaded.

The offender, Horan, was shot several times by police before being arrested and charged.

The offender threw his rifle aside and Constable Byers went to assist three other policemen as they arrested him.

By his actions, Senior Constable Byers displayed considerable bravery.

John Byers was not stationed in the area – but was rostered there for the Easter Mt Panorama Motor Cycle races and assisted other Police when this incident was happening.

Policeman wins bravery award

SYDNEY, Tuesday.

Constable 1st Class John Andrew Byers, of Wollongong Police, has been awarded the Queen’s Commendation for Brave Conduct.

The Governor of NSW, Sir Roden Cutler, announced today that the Queen had approved the award.

On February 28, this year, Constable Byers and Senior Constable E. J. ( Ted ) Beaver ( # 10097 ) went to Gladstone Avenue, Wollongong, to investigate a disturbance and the firing of rifle shots.

They saw a man seated in front of a house with a .22 calibre rifle which he pointed in their direction.

Before the weapon could be cocked, Constable Byers ran up to the man and wrested the rifle from his possession.

John was working at the Police Recruitment Office, Police HQ in 1954 when his brother, Don Avery ( NSWPF # 7893 ), applied to join the NSWPF.

After transferring to, and working from, Bega Police Station, John left the employ of NSWPF ( Resigned / Retired ? ) and then became an Insurance Broker in late 1970s, or possibly early 1980s and later moved to Griffith, NSW.


 

Survived by his wife Noreen, and children Christoper, Alison, and Joanne, 5 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.

Noreen subsequently died in Griffith in June 2018.

Her memorial service was 13 June 2018 at Griffith Ex Servicemans Club following private cremation.

 


 

 

 

…The Eulogy for John Edward Avery…
Welcomed into the world on 22nd January, 1936, in Chatswood,
NSW, John Edward Avery was the youngest child born to Francis
Daniel and May Columbia Avery (nee Barnes). There was Joan,
Edna, Don, Frank and John and John is now survived by his brother,
Don. Their father’s occupation was given as a “coal
lumper”…….
…A family friend, Alan Elworthy, to commence the Eulogy…
************
…Memories of John from his grandchildren…
************
John has had heart problems for many years. At the age of forty-
seven, he underwent quintuple by-pass surgery and then thirty years
later had a triple by-pass operation. John was one of those people
very attuned to his physical health and he managed his health
problems very well. His outlook was always positive, modest, stoical
and he never told anyone of any problems he had or suffered with.
Towards midday, on Tuesday, nine days ago, John realised that he
had a problem and so he called the ambulance to take him to the
Gosford District Hospital. Sadly, in spite of the best efforts of the
medicos, he was not able to recover and it was there at Gosford, John
Edward Avery, aged seventy-nine years, very suddenly and un-
expectedly departed this life on Wednesday, 18th March, 2015.
He will be very sadly missed by all those who knew and loved him. It
is a great debt we owe to men like John Avery for he was a man who
volunteered and was prepared to sacrifice his life in the military
services of this country. John also good and faithfully served the
citizens of NSW in the NSW Police Force for a period of sixteen years.

 

 

John was also one of those people who managed other people very well, for he was very, very organised with everybody and that included his family. It is his family who declare that John liked to do things his way.
Having said that though, John liked people, appreciated them and he was always quick to acknowledge those who had achieved something positive or good or performed admirably.
Those sorts of attributes are absolutely necessary to anyone with John’s aptitude for volunteering to do things for his fellow-man and society.
As an ex-president of two country Lions’ Clubs, a Life Member of the Sydney Adventist Hospital, a former Probus Club member, as well as being the current president of Terrigal Senior Citizens Association, John was always volunteering for something.
He was one of those people who was always busy, he could not sit still nor stop his mind from working, generally for the betterment of others.
John thought quietly and acted frankly, without fear or favour and, his penchant for organisation helped him to achieve what he wanted and better outcomes for the various organisations he supported. I am told that paperwork has been instituted more than twelve months ago, of which John was completely unaware, seeking to invest him with an Order of Australia Medal for his services to the community.
There is a saying, “we should build bridges, not barricades, stepping stones, not stumbling blocks.” John really did that and he didn’t do it in a serious or grim manner either.
He was known for his jokes or story-telling ability and John liked to laugh.
John also enjoyed travelling and, throughout his life, has been just about everywhere on this planet. More recently, he had discovered ocean cruising and had only returned from one such adventure, a couple of days before his passing. Above all else, the love of John’s life was his wife Noreen and he was a beloved husband of fifty-seven years, a much-loved and proud father of three, an adored and proud grandfather of five and great- grandfather of two, as well as a loved brother and a good friend.
His work here is now done.
May he rest in peace.

Anthony John CRAMP AKA Tony CRAMP

The club is saddened by the loss of Tony Cramp, better known around the club as Crampy. Crampy became involved in the club over the last few seasons and didn’t miss a training this pre season, always making sure the players drink bottles were full and always up for a chat.
Thank you for your contribution Crampy the club was a better place with you in it and we will miss you mate.


 

Anthony John CRAMP AKA Tony CRAMP

Pauline MizzLassi Crampy May you bring laughter to the heavens above, just as you did on earth. Thank you for everything you did for my family and I, something that will never be forgotten. Some tears were shed by my four children with my eldest reminding me how much you helped him in his teenage years. Rest peacefully ????

It is with great sadness that I share this post of a Cabramatta icon. My beautiful Mum, Margaret Rose O’Neill sadly passed away on 30 December 2019 in the Palliative Care Unit at Liverpool Hospital, aged 77.

Prior to Mums death she had been a resident of Coventry Rd, Longfield St and John St ( Cabramatta ) for the majority of her beautiful life.

Her employment included 25 + years working at Lansdowne Nursing Home.

Mum was always well known in the CBD of Cabra, and her means of transport were mainly the local bus and taxi services.

It is without doubt that the staff in the Liverpool Palliative Care Unit is living proof that Angels live amongst us.

During Mums funeral service, my sister Cheryl Mcgrath paid homage to the Students of Cabramatta High School who, on Christmas Day, visited the Hospital and shared their love of man kind as they joyfully sang Christmas Carols to the patients. It was the most beautiful experience and a true acknowledgement of the values being instilled in the Students at Cabramatta High.

Mum will be absolutely sadly missed, but I believe her commitment by always remaining a resident of Cabramatta she will always be remembered as a “True Local” of this beautiful town we call Cabra.

RIP Mum forever in our hearts Cheryl & Tony ????

A Heart felt message from Karly Jewell to her ‘Dad’.

My Dad
As most of you know I grew up with my grandparents; they were my mum and dad to me, from day one and that’s what I called them always and I was a proud daughter.

This morning at 4am TJ, my dad, and my only hero, hung his guitar up for the last time.

I’m beyond broken. My whole world is empty without you Dad.

I felt a river flowing from my heart that I will one day learn to hold back but for now I can’t do that.

I did not wish to write anything but I have received beautiful messages from friends, and our family friends, sharing memories and sending love.

I just couldn’t bring myself to see these words written.

I do thank you all for your love and support.

Mars is taking me home to Dads; to our family home, as I need to be there to feel close to him and when I can I will hold him one last time to tell him I love him – I’ll love him forever and I know we will find each other in our next journey.

My father, my life teacher, my inspiration, my everything and my heart.

I can’t talk to anyone and won’t be taking calls as you will all understand I need some time.

I do thank you for your all your support and caring in this time of need.

Dad I don’t know many girls that could do this, but as I make my way home to you, I’m proud to say, as I look out beyond these tears, I can just about name every tree along the way because you’d teach me every tree you had ever painted and could always see the beauty in them and so do I Dad .

I was proud to be the daughter of a real hero, the greatest father the greatest person I knew.

 


 

From BJ & Dollie:

It’s a very sad day today! My father Tony Jewell passed away at approximately 4am this morning.. Just thought I would let everyone that knew him, know. RIP TJ xox

He was a member of the 1st/19th Bushman Rifles. AN INFANTRY UNIT. in Sydney NSW Australia.

He was also a member of the NSW Police force for almost 30 years.

Thank you for yours service.

 

LEST WE FORGET.

 

LOVE BJ & DOLLIE

XOX


 

Love and miss you! your Partner Janice… Dad and Pop and father in law to: Wayne and Linda, Dennis and Sandy, Brian and Dollie, Jenny, Carmen, Karly and Mars, Annie and Karl, Matt, Ryan, Jack and Taylor, Kirsten and Connor, Hollie, Tom, Jake Amie, Sam,Bonnie,Finn, Lexie, Amity, Aurora and Isla.

You will be missed forever in our hearts..

xoxoxoxox

 


 

Some of the many messages from friends:

 

Milt MacFarlane I’ll get my “Hand Written” book he signed and sent me, out today and read a few poems…it was only a few weeks ago that I met up with Peter Ohlsen, the son of Bill, who didn’t know it was a poem by Tony my favourite “Decent Steel” of his dad only a song, so I sent Peters daughter an email photo of it…the last verse sums Tony up too
“His hands where knurled like Ironbark and just as hard I’d say
He’d show the young blokes, how a Bushmans earns his pay
In years to come, they might look back, and history might reveal
That men who loved as good as Tone, where made from decent steal”
Alisha Smith RIP Tony a great writer of many songs. I have a few in my collection and some words.
Condolences to all Tonys family.
Steven J Behsmann Tony and I joined at the same time ( NSWPF ) in December, 1973 – Class 137

Paul Wynne is with Sandy Benson at Pinelodge Prospect.

It’s a very sad day today! I have been advised by Maurie Whitton that our Classmate from 137 of 1973, Tony Jewell passed away at approximately 4am this morning. Tony was a unique individual. He was sworn in on the Friday before our Monday Attestation Parade as he turned 35 on the Sunday. In those years you had to be under 35. I believe he was also a member of the 1st/19th Bushman Rifles. He served the NSW Police Force in country locations for about 30 years. He was an accomplished poet and musician who wrote for Slim Dusty who recorded his numbers.

I, like all who knew him, will miss him.

R.I.P. Brother.

 

Garry Nowlan Sad to hear about Tony Jewell. We both joined The Job in ’73, I was just one Class before in 136. First met him in Sydney around ’75 as a Police Solo Cyclist. Then I transferred out to Broken Hill HWP, and some years later caught up with Tony again when he came out to Wentworth/Dareton on GD’s. They were great times when we all worked hard and played hard. He was a top bloke and great Country Copper.

 

Bruce Taylor Brian, from the number of comments it shows you how much Tony was liked and respected, I will miss him.
I spent many years working with him at Wentworth, Dareton and Buronga and would enjoy a cuppa with him at ‘smoko’ time Sincere condolences to you and your family, Tony was a man to be admired and respected, I guess the ‘Bitumen has finally reached Pooncarie’

Paul, unfortunately, was still suffering from work related PTSD – even after Retiring from the NSW Police Force.

He collapsed, at home, whilst suffered a heart attack.

His daughter-in-law, Bree, bravely performed CPR until the Paramedics arrived, who then took over CPR and transported him to Coffs Harbour Hospital however Paul did not respond to the treatment and passed away at the Hospital a short time after arrival.

It is hoped that he did not suffer.

May Thornys family remember the good times and know that they did everything possible when needed.

Thorny ” bled blue ” and being part of the Police Force meant the world to him – as too, did his family – even through the darkest hours.

May Thorny forever Rest In Peace.

Australian Rugby mourns the passing of Dick Thornett

Australian Rugby Union is today mourning the loss of tri-international Dick Thornett, who passed away on Wednesday morning.

One of three brothers, Dick first sprung onto the international sporting scene in 1960 with the Australian Olympic water polo team, before switching to Rugby in 1961 where his rapid rise through club, state and into the national team was as fast as they come.

After impressing with Randwick he was given a start with NSW and after a strong showing against Fiji joined his brother John in the Test pack for the three Test series against the Pacific Island nation.

His debut against Fiji in 1961 was the start of his career with the Wallabies, which lasted until the end of the 1963 season when he decided to switch codes and excel at rugby league.

In a career that included 11 consecutive Tests and 11 tour matches, Thornett was never dropped from a Wallabies side and is considered to be one of the most extravagantly gifted sportsmen Australia has produced in the last 50 years.

ARU Managing Director and CEO, John O’Neill AO, said Thornett would always be remembered for his deeds in both Rugby codes.

“There could be no greater tribute to a Rugby forward than to have former All Blacks great Colin Meads describe you as one of the finest second rowers he ever opposed,” Mr O’Neill said.

Dick Thornett was paid that honour after playing against Meads in 1962.

Dick Thornett played his 11 Tests across only a short period of time but his impact was enormous. He was a ferocious ball runner and at more than 100kg was a prototype for the modern day forward.

“The Thornett family has given wonderful service to Australian sport. John is a Wallabies legend who captained Australia for many years. Ken never played for the Wallabies but was one of rugby league’s great fullbacks.

Dick played Tests with them both, across two codes. He was a uniquely talented sportsman and a proud Wallaby. He will be missed.”

Gentle giant a multi-talented sportsman

 

Dick Thornett, the youngest of the three Thornett sporting brothers, represented Australia in Olympic water polo, rugby union and rugby league and could have played just about any other sport.

In a rugby Test against the All Blacks, an opposing forward saw Dick Thornett aim some well-directed retaliatory blows and asked: ”Were you an Olympic boxer as well as a water polo player?” But, as it turned out, when off the field Dick Thornett was very much the gentle giant.

Richard Norman ”Dick” Thornett was born on September 23, 1940, of a Canadian migrant, Harold Thornett, who had settled in Griffith as an irrigator, and Marjorie (nee Attwood). When the family moved to Bronte, the Thornett brothers learnt to swim before they were five and became the mainstays of the Bronte water polo team.

The sport built muscles and Thornett would claim that it gave him wonderful ball control. He captained Randwick High’s rugby team in 1957.

Leaving school, Thornett joined the NSW Police Force and was appointed to Darlinghurst station. He also went to the Randwick Rugby Club as second rower and lock, joining his brother Ken. He also found a place in the NSW water polo team. At 188 centimetres and weighing 104 kilograms, in 1960 Thornett competed for Australia in water polo at the Rome Olympics. In the 1961 season, he played in the Randwick first grade side.

Thornett played with the Wallabies for their second Test against Fiji in 1961, joining his other brother, John. His game was distinguished by his uncanny ball distribution skills.

He toured with the Wallabies in South Africa and ended playing 11 rugby Tests for Australia. In 1962, when Dick and John lined up in the second row against New Zealand, Dick Thornett was acknowledged as the finest forward out of both teams. North Sydney, South Sydney, Newtown and St George rugby league clubs were bidding for him. Parramatta, which had already signed on Ken, was said to be prepared to better the offer of any other club.

Joining Parramatta in 1963, Thornett handled his fame easily. The sports writer Jim Webster said: ”Despite his massive frame, Dick is docile – off the field – and very quietly spoken. A bit stand-offish to those unknown to him, he is reserved and speaks in very low tones even when a friendship is made.” Parramatta reached the final in the Sydney competition, but they went down to St George.

Thornett had his international rugby league debut on July 20, 1963, when he turned out for the first Test against South Africa.

Later that year, Ken and he joined the Kangaroo tour of England and France. At Swindon, fired by the antagonism of an opposing forward, he produced one of the greatest second-row performances of all time. Thornett played against the French when they toured Australia in 1964.

In 1965, he married Maureen Kay, an airline hostess, and resigned from the police force to help Ken, who was captain-coach of Parramatta.

In 1966 Maureen gave birth to Liesl and in 1967 to Amanda.

Also in 1967, when Thornett finished a four-year contract with Parramatta, he suffered a form lapse and missed a chance to tour again with the Kangaroos. That year he took over the North Star Hotel in North Sydney. He also signed a five-year contract with Parramatta, and in 1968 scored four tries in one match against Canterbury.

In 1968, Thornett was vice-captain to Johnny Raper in Australia’s successful World Cup campaign. He turned out 13 times in rugby league for NSW and 11 times in Tests for Australia. In 1969, his third daughter, Sophie, was born. Thornett stayed with Parramatta until the end of the 1971 season, totting up 168 appearances for the club.

Even that year, he was in the running for a tour with the Kangaroos to New Zealand but he declared himself unavailable because of business. In 1972, he joined Eastern Suburbs but played only a handful of games before announcing his retirement so that he could concentrate on running his hotel.

In 1976, Thornett moved to the Dolphin Hotel in Surry Hills. Ten years later, he and Maureen were divorced and he later married a former Olympic swimmer, Jan Andrew. In 1993 he ran into serious financial problems and had to make ends meet by doing gardening jobs and driving taxis. He then settled in Millthorpe in the state’s central west where he had a small farm and could be near his brothers.

Thornett’s second marriage ended in divorce several years ago and, after battling heart and general health problems for some time, he died in Sydney last Wednesday. Dick Thornett is survived by his brothers and their families, his three daughters, two sons-in-law and five grandchildren. His funeral will be at All Saints, Woollahra, at noon tomorrow.
